Amphibian Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:13904  
Name:Amphibian
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Squadron Supreme
Creator:Dr Nightmare  
Date Added:April 9, 2009
Base Figure:Aquaman variant
Height:6.20 inches
Obviously I took some creative liberties, he's more interesting to look at now I think than the regular suit he has (and I didn't feel like sculpting all the scales and having them be fugly :P ).

Also, I am NEVER EVER working with Aquaman figures again, EVER! This was bar-none, THE hardest figure to work with! The torso wouldn't open so I ended up breaking the neck and gashing the sides badly, then the knees are impossible to disassemble unless you crack the dried paint. And putting the knees back on are a completely new problem because you have to widen the holes so the pegs will go back into them! And then a fat guy farted in the room! GAH!

Torso: Aquaman Jr?
Chest: Aquaman
Shoulders/Biceps: Batman
Forearms: Aquaman
Lower Legs: Superman

And I don't know anything about Amphibian so I put him in wierd poses, lol

Yo Dr.Nightmare.........
Very nice figure mate.......
I've admired you work for a long
time but have never commented or
spoken to you because I've never registered
here......I just see the customs and leave...
But not anymore, I had to praise you.....
Your painting is just outstanding and your
ideas for figures are better that ToyBiz or Hasbro..
Your such I nice fella and you make me laugh
with some of the comments you leave......
Anyway I have been doing a few customs for
a year now, with your advise and tutorials.....
I'm going to put the Bishop, Punisher, Deadpool and
Juggernaut up on here this week and would be very,
very grateful if you could take a look at them
and tell me what you think.....They are up to standard
I promise......Thanks mate.....Ged Tasker.................

Awesome job, Dr.N! You say you had some difficulties making this one? Aren't those the ones you remember the most, though? I won't forget when making my Valkyrie figure's breasts, I was putting so much pressure on my hand due to cutting with my utility knife, that I paralysed some nerves in my hand for a couple of weeks! Good times! Again, great job on Amphibian.

Yar, I'm making them for someone!
I don't have a problem with all the DCUC figs at all, it's just this specific figure that I had a problem with! It fought back every step of the way! I zigged and it zagged! I pried and it clamped down on my fingers! I threw it against the wall and it spit shrapnel in my eye!

that is Amphibian indeed, O' doctorless one! What are you, on a Squadron Supreme kick or are you still making these for that collector over at CC? I really think you did a spectacular job on this one. I can't seem to figure out how to get those dcu's opened good either without mangling them.
